that's what I absolutely love about this record, there's so many cross references between songs like this

 

Fuck yes, it's beautiful. I'm a sucker for Lana's narratives. The development as the album progresses is amazing- the dynamics and everything.

 
Groupie Love - 
"My babe made me sing to a fire escape

City girl but she grew up in the tri-state"

 

God Bless America - 

"I hear the sweetest melodies
On the fire escapes of the city"

 

13 Beaches - 

"And I still get lonely"

 

God Bless America -

"Even when I'm alone

I'm not lonely
You better believe nobody could make me feel lonely"

There’s a story that goes with the song, where Del Rey calls up Lennon to tell him that she thought his part was perfect, and he says that he’s so happy because no one’s ever said that to him before. He’s John Lennon’s son, he’s lived his entire life in his father’s shadow, and Lana Del Rey has just given him his greatest ever compliment. There’s a tragedy in that, don’t you think?

“I told him, ‘I’m the one who’s honoured, I’m the lucky one; so I just want you to remember that, Sean, I’m singing with you.’”

What a sweetheart!!

 

 

why im crying in club right now. I love this woman

My fav user review of lfl:

 

 

Shi*-Lana. This trash is like 'Born To Die' 4.0 I won't say that it lacks much, it lacks EVERYTHING. The disc is honeymoon from beginning to the end. Don't reinvents, keep talking about sugar daddys and drugs. Stop right there Fa*s. Don't you see it's the same Malibu Stacy but no hat?

 

 

 

 

Edit: He gave witness a 10 wtf

Where do you feel this album fits into Lana’s catalog overall?

 

Lana is a career artist, a defining artist of her generation. I see her as a link on the chain along with Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks, and all the great once in a lifetime singer/songwriters. She’s created her own language and her own genre. She’s always inspired and actively creating her body of work. This album is her next offering.

This sounded eerily like Graham ctfu

I love how all of Lana's songs connect in some way or another- even if it's inadvertent at times.

Just got done through first listen and was really impressed. Lyrically this is so so solid. Like shockingly so  :O New themes, new perspectives. Same unnecessary fuzzy vocal filter where it isn't needed. 

 

Immediate standouts are 13 Beaches, Cherry, Beautiful People, When The World Was At War, G.B.A. and Get Free.

 

Tomorrow Never Came is such a great story, not sure how I feel about Shawn Lemon, however not as highpitched as i'd expected.

 

Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems are like her best lyrics ever.

 

The pre-chorus of When The World Was At War... is one of the best moments on any Lana song. So sick

 

Cherry is so fun. What Freak tried to be. Her voice in bridge is so cute and playful.

 

I think this album has so much more personality than Honeymoon, apparent straight away.

it'd better be on the deluxe version released (by Eclipse?!) someday in the future along with Roses Bloom For You, BAR (well-mixed ver.) and Yosemite.  :defeated:

Gorl, before I need #AKAMertens  :hooker:

First time I don't like a Lana Del Rey album :( I wanted to, but I can't. This type of music is not really my style, I can't really enjoy this as an album. Love, Groupie Love and Get Free are the best ones, though, and I don't necessarily dislike the songs, but they are not that great.

 

I will probably listen to it more times, I hope it grows in me. UV and Honeymoon were my favorite albums, I loved so much the path Lana was taking. I expected this album to be different, but most of these songs lack something to give me that Lana Del Rey feeling :(


We both know that it's not fashionable to love me...
